Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Five

Sorry but "In the Cards" is no longer on the cards it has to go. Not a bad episode but the rest are simply stronger episodes.

Apocalypse Rising
The Ship
...Nor the Battle to the Strong
Trials and Tribble-ations
Things Past
Rapture
The Darkness and the Light
For the Uniform
In Purgatory's Shadow
By Inferno's Light
Ties of Blood and Water
Children of Time
Call to Arms

Gonna have to toss Rapture. The whole episode was one big anti-climax, with the let down of Bajor not joining the Federation. Sisko's whole vision quest was just absurd at times and really out of tone with things.

Apocalypse Rising
The Ship
...Nor the Battle to the Strong
Trials and Tribble-ations
Things Past
The Darkness and the Light
For the Uniform
In Purgatory's Shadow
By Inferno's Light

Soldiers of the Empire
Children of Time
Call to Arms

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Five

A lot of my faves falling by the wayside. I'll take out Apocalypse Rising, which was a very good season opener, but the ending with Martok as the changeling instead of Gowron was a bit of a cop-out. The writers more than make up for it with both characters eventually, but it doesn't stand alone well.

The Ship
...Nor the Battle to the Strong
Trials and Tribble-ations
Things Past
The Darkness and the Light

Oops, I forgot to remove Soldiers of the Empire a couple of posts ago. Done it now, sorry!

"Children of Time", more of the Odo/Kira romance.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Five

"Ties of Blood and Water" is next. It was nice to see Legate Ghemor's character again. He was a good man and was superbly acted. That said, I found the Kira angst over reliving her father's death annoying. As much as I enjoyed her character, I could have done without her family's backstory and the weird love-triangle between Kira, her mother, and Dukat. This was just more of that nonsense from a different angle.

I did like the confrontation between Sisko and Dukat in Quark's with Weyoun downing the poisoned kanar. A great scene in an otherwise dull episode.

Hmm. I'll go with Things Past, as it's not quite as good as The Ship, and I can't decide between the two.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Five

The Darkness and the Light - because Star Trek has been really inconsistent when it comes to disfigurement. They're have the ability to reconstruct damaged faces (Beverly's burned face in Genesis, Kira's mom's scar) and can easily change a face from one race to another. But when the plot requires it, a Cardassian's melted face (or the Bajoran guy in the episode Ensign Ro) is irreparable. Eh.

It's strength has finally failed "Nor the Battle to the Strong". It's getting really tough to decide now.

Gotta go with the Ship. While it's definitely got it's moments and is action filled, the story when you get right down to it is nothing special. Sisko get's a future plot device.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Five

EDIT: Someone beat me to The Ship. I'll go for For the Uniform then. It's a good episode, but the remaining four are classic DS9 I'd say.

In Purgatory's Shadow
By Inferno's Light

"Call to Arms", It's a great episode, great battle, great ending hook with the massive fleet, but the other episodes are simply better.

Trials and Tribble-ations
In Purgatory's Shadow
By Inferno's Light

Gotta do it... Trials and Tribbleations. It's silly fun and nostalgia, but it doesn't hold up to the hard drama of the two parter that's left.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Five

Edit: I initiated knocked out In Purgatory's Shadow, but I changed my mind. Purgatory was a great set-up, and Inferno was a rushed payoff.

The winner is In Purgatory's Shadow.

I'll delete By Inferno's Light. An excellent follow-up, if a little rushed at the end.

In Purgatory's Shadow

EDIT: Damn, missed out by seconds. By Inferno's Light a worthy winner anyway, it's all the same story. I would have gone for Trials or Call to Arms myself.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Season Five

I would have been happy with any of the last 4 winning. Now where did I put the Orb of Time to go back and ensure "Trails...." wins.
